Wee Waa High provides a diverse curriculum for both senior and junior students. A range of subjects cater for students intending to pursue tertiary education and a strong vocational education program in five subjects meets student needs and interests in gaining industry qualifications.

The principal's recommendation scheme to several universities enhances the opportunities for students to select the university and course of their choice. A committed staff regularly provide after hours coaching and support for seniors in small or class groups.

Fourteen senior students attended after hours coaching in five subjects areas. This included a student in the preliminary year. Six students attended twenty hours of coaching each. The senior study room was used for small group lessons and individual study.

Two senior staff members provided in-school coaching for four hours per week for senior students in addition to the after hours coaching program. Special excursions during the year to cater for students' needs included a senior geography, music and business studies trip to Sydney and a gifted and talented science trip to the opening of Science Week in Sydney.
